Wednesday, September 25, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune 3 Squirt is always smiling Hi, everyone! My name is Squirt and I'm about a year old, and as you might tell from my picture I'm a Staffordshire terrier. Very much like a pit bull. You might also tell by my picture that I'm a very happy dog, I'm always smiling and hang a good time; isn't that what life is all about? I got myname Squirt be- cause I'm not real big for my kind of dog, well not tall ways, but I am a chunky monkey! I have a very good attitude about my life and what goes on. I just go with the flow here at the shelter and wait for visitors to come. I hear that my breed is some- times difficult to adopt, so I want to make sure you know that I'm a good girl no matter what breed I am, I'm just me! I'm very good in my kennel; I hardly ever go potty in my kennel so I think I would be a good girl in my new house if I had one. I am very friendly and greet everyone I meet with a big smile. I would very much like someone to teach me new things. I'm young and want to learn, I just need you to teach me! I do have energy but I'm not a crazy fool. I like to play and be with people. I'm good around other dogs too. Won't you come just take a peek at me? I would like to meet you and maybe we would just hit it off with each other. I will be at the shelter waiting .... I have been waiting for quite a long time, so maybe this will be my big chance! Call the shelter if you want to know more about me, better yet just come see me for yourselfl Love, Squirt
